KOLKATA: Out of desperation to bring more property owners under the unit area assessment ( UAA ) system, the Kolkata Municipal Corporation assessment department has gone for ‘forced conversion’.
TimesView There have been several one-step-forward-twosteps-back moves in the KMC’s implementation of the UAA system.
“The instruction was sent as the civic bosses wanted to expedite the process of conversion from the rent-based valuation system to UAA system.
“A dip in revenue made the revenue department bosses panic.
But we have been forced to keep the previous system alive till the majority of the property tax payers are converted to the UAA system,” said an official of the revenue department.
